Um..I'm writing a review TO anyone who owns (and hopefully loves) an LG Optimus G.
This review is "specifically" for you guys (me being one of them). I really really like the Optimus UI (original UI). When I wrote a review about the Optimus G's UI, I stated in that review (3 years ago !) that it was the best UI I had ever experienced. After using the V10 for several hours....LG felt like a COMPLETE and utter stranger to me. In fact, I thought several times I was using Touchwiz (which I dislike immensely). I don't' regret' getting the V10 BUTTT I'm now desperately trying to figure out how I can get back the Optimus UI found on the Optimus G (E970). I really don't know what to tell you other than what you should already know. Handsome Rugged and Durable Design (body), Superb Camera, Fast and Flawless Navigation and Operation, Astounding and Breathtaking Display, battery (um, disappointing - sorry LG), AT&T's bloatware (minimal but I still think their dirty hands are hidden all over this phone) I haven't tried features like : IR Remote, OTG capability, MHL or Slimport etc. but I know there's no (built-in) FM Radio App. This leads me to think there's no radio (oh well) The LG V10 is definitely TOP NOTCH TECHNOLOGY. ...but the UI (in my honest opinion) has definitely taken a wrong turn. The Optimus UI is very intuitive (to me) but the LG UX 4.0+ (whatever '+' means) has now become a thorn in my hands for the next 2 years. As awesome as this phone is, I honestly and sincerely would not recommend this device to any friends or family (solely based on the UI -sorry again LG). If I figure out how to put the original Optimus UI on this phone, then I would label this phone : 2015 Smartphone of the Year (EASILY!!!!) My other options would be : Motorola Droid Turbo 2 or the Acer Predator 6 (or the next LG flagship .....um, possibly)
xz, 05 Nov 2015awful battery lifejudging by the review..
average is more appropriate word for it :)
I'm not sure why people are complaining about the battery life. I've had this phone for a week now, got it on Verizon, and EVERY day since I'm getting 15+ hours off the chargerm with moderate usage.
When is this phone going to be available in singapore. I really really like to have this phone
better put extra money on Battery R&D..
the less progress from all cellphone manufacturer is their battery division..
I think that smartphone manufacturers should make HUGE screen phones that actually need two hands to use......this will definitely reduce texting while driving accidents AND make me a happy camper cause I love big screen (two handed) phones. So when people describe the supposed "sweet spot" ......manufacturers need to go BIGGER. So people need to complain MORE often about what exactly is too big a screen size so OEMs know what size is the best size to promote Safe Driving habits.
I just received my LG V10 November 4, 2015 at 12:51pm (via UPS). AT&T's Opal Blue is not a girly color, thankfully. It's more on the Greyish-Blue color.
Screen size bigger than bigger!!! screen pixel higher than higher!!! Specifications better than better!! battery excellent than poor than poor!!!
good day everyone, currently I'm using note 3 and most likely i will update this phone...just want to check to you guys...have you try to compare the output sounds or loud speaker with note 3 and v10...for those who have experience to use the phone both please share your honest review or opinion...i find the note 3 speaker very clear and loud even the bass i could hear it...thanks in advance...God bless you all...
The specs are wonderful but why does it have 1440p screen? That's such a deal breaker for me. It only results in shorter battery life, even with that 3000mAh battery. Should have come with a 4000+ mAh battery or maybe should have just stayed 1080p resolution
l understand some Chinese write some English is not very well. Because we always use Google Translate. But it Translate always come out is not make sense.
Loveforever, 03 Nov 2015Hi rimial your loved site Verge ,had appreciate everyaspects of V10, even battery endurance no... moreI did not see that on Verge, but here you have the latest review on LG v10 from gsmarena, http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_v10-review-1333p3.php
stating the following:
"The LG G2 with its 5.2" screen had a 3,000mAh battery, then the G3 with a 5.5" screen, the G4 and now the LG V10. The V10 is slightly thinner than the G2 (8.6mm vs. 8.9mm), but not by much. What we're getting at is that the internal volume has gone up while the battery capacity hasn't changed in over two years now.
LG rates the V10's talk time at 18 hours and about as much, close to 17 hours. Even the G2 did better than this. The web browsing and video playback times are average. Nothing spectacular when you consider the screen was at a modest 100 nits (well below average)."
